… maybe STAR COOPERATION. But it will take another couple of minutes until the Großer Preis des Mittelstandes Award will be awarded.

But first, we had to convince the jury in the second stage of the competition that we belong into the final. For that, Dominik Dussling, Manager of STAR MARKETING, and Wolfgang Kraiss, General Manager at STAR SYSTEMS, travelled especially to Besigheim this past week. In just two minutes, we were to introduce us and what we do to the committee – really no easy feat. However, the first feedback we got from jury members and our competitors has been very positive.

Großer Preis des Mittelstandes 2017 jury stage - STAR COOPERATION


Overall, 28 medium-sized companies had made it to the so-called jury stage, out of 847 companies based in Baden-Württemberg that had been nominated. And they came from the most varying industries. There were businesses working in automation technologies, but also in vocational education. Also building contractors, event catering companies and even a clinic had entered the competition. So, we are in great company. And we are really curious to learn which three nominated companies will receive the prestigious award on 30 September 2017 in Würzburg. Keep your fingers crossed!
